The scientific method

Title - The scientific method
Purpose: What do you want to learn/find out?
find out what fizzy drink will make the biggest reaction???

Hypothesis: Try to predict the answer to the problem. Another term for hypothesis is ‘educated guess’. This is usually stated like ” If I…(do something) then…(this will occur)
Me and my group thought it was the coca-cola drink which we thought had the highest reaction.

Materials: List everything you will need to conduct your experiment.
6 different fizzy drinks and some mentos:
^ Coke
^ Diet coke
^ Fanta
^ Pepsi
^ 7up
^and L&P

Experiment procedure: The fun part! Design a test or procedure to confirm or disprove your hypothesis. Write down each step so that someone else could do the same experiment.
1.  Put a hole through the top of the bottle lids
2.  grab some sellotape and put 4 or 5 mentos on each sellotape
3. take the lid of and stick some of the sellotape through the hole so you can carry it without the mentos falling in.  

Analysis/Data: Record what happened during the experiment.
7up: was the first one to be exampled but didn’t go really high it also was the second highest.

Conclusion:Review the data and check to see if your hypothesis was correct.
My hypothesis was correct, because when the mentos touch’s the carbon dioxide in the drink, the carbon dioxide does not have anywhere to go but up.  


Today Team 5 has been getting prepared for our Maths Test and that we had to study as hard as we can to get better so that we are ready to to improve on our Maths Test.Everybody moved straight into their maths class because that was the first thing that we had to do. All the students had to try and bring their own Pencil or Pen to their maths class so we can work out our answers. Before I knew it, the whole block went absolutely silent and it was time for everybody to stay focus on our maths test and making sure that we don't get distracted. The reason why it is so important to set a test is because you can compare what you have done in the beginning at how well you have done till the end. If you want to have a great education or a great life, then you have to study and do well at all your test subjects before moving on with your life. If you do well in your test, then you can make it into a great university and have a job and a driving license. No talking to the person next to you/Don't try cheating because that means that you're not trying your best at the test. Try using these strategies to help you out when you have come across hard maths problems that you don't know how to solve? Process of Elimination - Means that you read the question and you try looking at all your options that you have. Then you can cross out each option that you think doesn't suit the question. 2. Identify Key Words - You have to try and search for all the keywords that you have found in the question and try understanding what it means. 3. Read Question 3 Times - This means that you have to try and read the question 3 times before answering the question

Today we had to write how well we did for our mathematics test...
